Would it matter how long the UVB took? I can either order it with 2 business days or have it take 3-7 days to get here, I would like to save some money if I can, it doesn't matter though either way.

Hello,

How is your boy's nail doing, have you gotten the bleeding stopped now?
As suggested, neosporin or polysporin are fine to use or even raw unpasteurized honey,
too. If you do use honey on the nail bed, be sure there aren't any bugs in the tank that
could be attracted to the honey.
He should be fine & hopefully his nail will grow back. If it doesn't though, he will be alright
missing a nail.

Thank you for thinking about Gowther! Yes his name is Gowther lol a bit weird but I decided to name him from a anime I like that is non binary because when he was little I couldn’t tell his Gender lol. So I had work but when I woke up this morning I fed him the dubia roaches and of course right after I fed him them he decided to poop all over his greens. After that I poured the medicine with water onto his feet so I believe it should be fine. I’m going to see if the Neosporin I have is safe for him and then I’ll apply some :) As of right now I have a better UVB and a different basking light holder on the way for him to live a better life!

This is what his toes look like right now! He seems better and he will be happier once I get the lighting fixed

I have just now come home and I see that his finger is also looking like it was bleeding. I’m not sure what happened I was gone for a few hours

I see right at the very tip-- keep an eye on it and see if it starts to creep up the tail- keep pics of it and then let us know-

What should I do about the black stuff already on his toe? Not sure if it is tail rot but it looks like it.

I don't see any tail trauma at all so that's no problem. The toe looks worse than in the first pic you posted, hopefully the betadine + neosporin will take care of it. If it gets infected looking [ red/swollen ] then you should see a good reptile vet.

Yeah I’ll take pictures of them everyday to keep progress or track of it. I will most likely take him to the vet on Monday just to lower my anxiety levels since I love the little man so much

Thank you very much for all of the help. Today I think the toe looks worse then it did yesterday. I’m just gonna take him to a vet in the morning since I have tomorrow and the next day off. It’ll give me some anxiety relief within the least. Here are some pics of it today.
